Heritage trail

Main Range National Park

From the Governors Chair car park an interesting self-guiding walk, showing various road construction methods, follows the historic road.

4WD Required
No Dogs Permitted

Getting there

Follow Lake Moogerah Rd, then Spicers Gap Road via Spicers gap camping / picnic area and up to the Governors Chair lookout carpark.

Spicers Gap Rd is gravel and can be difficult in wet past the picnic grounds but most 2WD vehicles will be OK.

If the road is closed you can walk from the Spicers Gap carpark / picnic area.

I wouldn’t rate this walk as hard, there is a bit of uphill but its fairly gentle and was a nice informative walk. I have done it by itself but also as part of the Mt Mathieson circuit.

Agree with others. Not hard at all. I completed this as part of Mt Mathieson trail. Nice views of Spicers Peak. Became a bit arduous by the end. Worth the quick detour to Moss's well for the birds. Someone left a marker to point towards a Satin Bower Birds bower, cheers whoever you are, nice spotting!

Easy walking trail.
Fair bit of leaf litter and logs blocking the road.
But there was a heap of 4WD's at the end of the track, so I think maybe but was to stop 4WD access.
Some lovely views of Spicer's Gap

This walk is a part of Mt Mathieson circuit (which has moderate difficulty), definitely not hard - a well-defined old cobblestone road with gentle inclines. 4WD is not required, at least in dry weather.
